Default How to Change Your CVT Transmission Fluid (Drain/Refill)

Read This Thread First Before Moving Forward: http://my6thgen.org/f7/when-should-i-drain-refill-flush-my-cvt-transmission-3153/#post53356

So I finally put this together for you 2007-2008 6thgenners. This write-up is for a Drain and Refill ONLY.

For Flush Check Here: http://my6thgen.org/f107/how-change-your-cvt-transmission-fluid-flush-2822/#post48151

Here is a high-level summary of the whole process:
1. Remove drain plug from CVT oil pan.
2. Drain fluid
3. Reinstall drain plug in oil pan
4. Fill CVT with tranny fluid at the charging pipe
5. Drive CVT for 10 min
6. Check fluid level.
7. Add fluid if necessary

Now on the actual procedure

Remember to only use OEM Nissan Fluid. Specs below:

CVT AUTO
Type: NISSAN CVT Transmission Fluid
Part #: 999MP-NS200P
Price: $14.95/qt (You need approx. 6-7 quarts)
Order Link: http://www.mynismo.com/products/?id=4401

Orginal Write-up Credits: dagreek from http://www.nissanclub.com/

Tools/supplies Needed:
  • Pliers
  • 10mm Allen Wrench, T-handle
  • 1.5 ft. of clear flexible tubing (1 in. diameter)
  • Container marked of f at 1 qt. (did this with a measuring cup and sharpie marker)
  • Collection pan to collect the used transmission fluid
  • Flat Head Screwdriver
  • Transmission Fluid Funnel
  • 6-7 Quarts of NISSAN Matic-D Automatic Transmission Fluid
Experience needed: I would say some experience working on cars, at least be able to do your own oil changes before you try to do this. You will also need one person around to help.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 1: Drive car around for about 10 minutes to warm everything up. Park it, run through all the gears (P, R, N, D, and then back to P) and leave the engine running. Pull the transmission dip stick out, wipe clean, insert back in but rotate 180 degrees and push all the way down. Pull back out and check the level (remember where it is so you can refill back to same location, should be at the second notch). This is also where you will add transmission fluid.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 2: Raise the front end of the vehicle somehow. I have small ramps I use for changing my oil so I drove up onto these. Turn off the car.

Step 3. With the dip stick pulled out. Place a collection pan underneath the transmission drain plug. Using the hex screwdriver/tool, unscrew the drain plug. Notice that it doesnít take much force to unscrew this so donít over tighten when putting back on. Allow all of the fluid to drain, I left it to drain for about 15 min.

Step 4. Screw the drain plug back on. I think you can replace the o-ring on the drain plug but I didnít do this.

Step 5. Measure how much fluid you drained out by using your container that you marked off at 1 qt. I drain roughly 4.5 qts. Add the same amount of fluid you took out back into the transmission through the recharging pipe (same place you pulled the dip stick out) using your funnel.

Click the image to open in full size.

Step 6. Lower the car down. Run it back through all the gears and check the fluid level just as before. Adjust the fluid as needed.

Default Re: How to Change Your CVT Transmission Fluid (Drain/Refill)

So I have a 2007 with about 46,500 miles and I decided to do a CVT drain and fill today. I bought the car with about 36,000 miles and decided that today would be a good day (got my shipment of 14 quarts of CVT flud as I planned to also do a drain and fill on my wife's 2007 Murano if everything went alright). I looked at the instructions on this org and pulled the Max up onto some ramps in my garage and got started.

The Allen bolt was on there pretty good so I had to use the handle of my jack as a breaker bar. Not to much force was applies and the bolt loosened. I had funnel on top of a catch can (milk jug marked off with 1qt increments) under the car so I could catch the escaping and measure the escaping fluid. I thought easy, I could control the flow and if it got to about 4 quarts, I could stop the flow, empty it and continue on. I keep loosening it and all of the sudden the bolt comes flying out and there is a torrent of CVT fluid rushing out of my car and spilling everywhere. Oh SH!T

I am trying to get the funnel to get all of the fluid into the milk jug, I can't control the flow of fluid coming out, I am not sure where the plug has gone (unknown to me the plug has now settled itself at the bottom of the funnel and is now impeeding the flow of the fluid going into the jug. Wife is calling out to me "How is it going honey". I said back "Doing great, almost done", but really I am saying SH!T as I rush to find a roll of paper towels to clean up the now spreading CVT fluid on the floor. She won't come out here and really check, but I know she ask about the stain later on - just had a little spill honey...

Now I am not sure how much fluid really is supposed to go back in the car, but I'll start out at 4 because there was a bunch that came out of it. I get the spill under control, tighten up the bolt and start to refill it. I put in 4 quarts, start the car, go through all the gears (P, R, N D, 1 and back), check the level- it's at the 1st notch, put another quart in just for safe measure. Checked again - it is just under the 2nd notch so everything is alright. I took the car for a drive, came home, checked the level again and everything seems to be alright. Not that I noticed anything wrong before, but it can't be doing any harm as the fluid that came out was nice and dark.

My advice to those of you who are going to do this on your own, it isn't hard at all, but make sure you have a clean oil catch basin so you can catch this fluid. It doesn't come out like doing a regular oil change, it gushes!

I can beat that. The first oil change I did on my wife's Altima...I jacked up the car, climbed underneath and pulled the drain plug. As I'm watching the oil drain into the pan, I'm thinking...boy, that oil looks different...kind of milky. Then I realize I pulled the CVT drain plug, NOT the oil drain plug. I then frantically begin trying to get the plug back in as the salesman at the dealership told me when I bought the car that the CVT fluid was about $22/qt. By the time I get the drain plug back in, I realize that I've drained a little over 4 quarts of fluid. Needless to say, this was one of the most expensive oil changes I'd ever done. It was a lot of fun explaining to my wife how I "saved" money by doing the oil change myself. I'd never had a car with a typical drain plug on the trans...never expected on the Altima, either.

Use a 5 quart jug to drain into if you have one.

Almost same procedure for the 5-speed, but the bolt is in a different place. I also did the whole measuring thing, and I also spilled it everywhere. Good fun trying to clean it up off the floor.

Thanks for the write up, this was an easy job. I am glad I did not pay someone to do this service. I thought I would be able to get this done without making a mess but I was wrong. I even had a big 5 quart jug to drain in...that fluid GUSHES out and makes a mess, ha ha. I should have used large towels instead of hand cloths underneath... My shirt, arms, and and concrete still got fluid on them. Thank god I had some kitty litter hanging around the house.

Can I ask a stupid question? Why do you need 6-7 qts when it seems the average is about 4.5? I've yet to do this but thinking if I only need 5 qts tops, why am I spending another $44 for fluid not needed?

7 is just for the backup in case you lose one. lol

Default Re: How to Change Your CVT Transmission Fluid (Drain/Refill)

Hi, I have a question about this procedure. I have a 2010 Altima coupe and I am trying to change the CVT fluid, however, the drain plug is on the side of the transmission and I cant drain all of it out of the pan.

So, I was considering using a pump to extract the fluid from the transmission refuel line (where you pour the fluid it).

Is that ok to do? Will it hurt anything? My car has about 62,000 miles and the fluid is really dirty.

Please let me know if possible.

Thanks guys
